Four years back , when dear October was still a young maiden , I walked home strolling around, breaking the silence of the evening.
I saw my mother, lying on the floor, Eyes closed, Unconscious. ........ Oh god , It's a stroke . They said !
I saw them rushing her to the hospital, and felt someone had taken my soul away , leaving just my body to perish. I saw them cry , shout and run... But not a tear fell from my eyes, I was still standing there, Unmoved. Frozen ! Still Contemplating about every that just had happened. Trying to accept the reality.
My mother was unconscious for a week, and never a drop fell from my eyes . I became the strongest version of myself, For my younger siblings, my scared father , and when she regained her senses, and called my name for the first time , I cried . I cried alot . I cried of gratitude.
Arrival of December somehow makes the heart feel younger.. So did the poem that I scribbled some days ago.. I wasn't going to post it.. But today's prompt is nudging me to post it anyway, saying it's ok to giggle and bounce and spread some cheer.
Winter Cheer ----------
December's here, filled with cheer The end of the year is oh so near! Can't you hear the jingle bells dear? It's no time to shed anymore tear
December's here, move up the gear, Let's steer away from gloom and fear Cleanse the heart pure, with vision clear Let's make happier the forthcoming year
It's mid-december, cold cold weather A time to savour the Festive fervor, Silver spilled all over by the Master Painter Spring in the green room, readying colourful attire
@miraquill thank you so much for making my day shine bright. ✨ You guys would never know how grateful I am. It's not just about the pods and reposts, it's about the love and support y'all gave me. Thank you for making me a better person, a better writer and best spammer. Thank you for being there.
I feel you like the warm rays Of mellow sunshine Streaming in through the gaps Of the drawn curtains My worries slowly melt away Into thin air I feel light and refreshed — Free from all worldly burdens
You are a breath of summer breeze— Cool and replenishing That soothes me and calms My hyperactive mind I’m glad that in this chaotic world You found me And gave me the freedom To call you mine
